JustRite Friday Challenge #123: Color Inspiration

Sheri asked us to use the colors pink, yellow and purple from her beautiful inspiration photo for the current JustRite Friday Challenge.
I started by stamping Fleuriste Newsprint BG on ivory CS mounted to a purple card and distressing my edges with Antique Linen.  My flower was created with Spellbinders' Bitty Blossoms using crinoline fabric. Recently inspired by Tammy Tutterow's informative blog post, wherein she not only explains what crinoline (aka buckram) is but where to purchase it and links to two beautiful floral projects, I had to try this new-to-me medium. Love combining two of my fav things: paper/fabric. I colored my flower using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist 'Popsicle' and secured with a yellow Copic-colored gem brad and added a pink Copic-colored seam binding bow beneath. My sentiment is stamped using Ooh La La French Frills and a small flower from Botanical Butterflies onto a Spellbinders' oval, also aged with Antique Linen. A few purplish/pinkish gems finish it all off.

GORGEOUS flower and very pretty card! I laughed at your comment, what's our problem with such pretty colours? Regina had a hard time too! I think I had less trouble with a yellow and grey challenge and I loathe those colours!
